A view of Samuel Perry Dinsmoor, 1843-1932, standing next to what appears to be a coffin-shaped concrete slab and a lid inscribed with the Freemasons' square and compass symbol and the name "Dinsmoor." Dinsmoor was a Civil War veteran and, subsequently, a teacher, sculptor, and landscape artist in Lucas, Kansas. He created "The Garden of Eden" on his property in Lucas and constructed over 200 concrete sculptures there which depict his views about Populism and religion. The garden is on the National Register of Historic Places.
